of grievances that the united states had against great britain in the early 19th century. many are associated with maritime disputes between great britain and the united states because this is the middle of that -- napolian wars. they are trying to establish trade, and they are impressing seamen from american vessels because they need to script crews to keep the royal navy manned because they were disputing with the british and the indians on the frontier, and british policy affected the prizes very badly, and prizes for american exports slumped during this period causing an agricultural depression making people angry. there's a whole range of those sort of grievances. basically, i think why the war was ultimately fought and why it was fought when it was because many of the disputes have been preceded in 1812 by a number of years without necessarily producing the declaration of war was that by the summer of 1811, the main grievance was something called the council, a british form of executive order, the american equivalent is the executive order issued by the president, and through the execut

ended in 2009 but most did not feel it but people in all three states feel the united states should get out of afghanistan by a 2-1 margin. but most approve of the job that obama is doing there. a gender gap is on display. it is too close to call in florida where the president is down but it is 13 points in ohio. and he has a 17-point edge among women in pennsylvania. >>reporter: thank you on the perfect strange day in washington, dc. another former aide to john edwards on the witness stand today. he said he overher the foam presidential candidate asking his mistress whether her baby bump was showing. the foam aide here in the blue tie and glasses said in 26 fix he saw the mistress get off the elevator on the same floor as john edwards and the foam aide says the mistress told him she and john edwards were madly if love. and the next day the aide says john edwards called him to deny he was having an affair and told him rielle hunter was crazy. not long after that run in the aide said campaign staffers had to stay in a different hotel floor from the presidential candidate, but one day in
was in germany on official business. and shortly after general wheeler returned to the united states he suffered a heart attack, and was in walter reed. the only two chiefs who were asked about this dismissed it, one in very crude terms, and wheeler later told the president that there had never been such a meeting. so that is about as far as i can go with that controversial story. as secretary brown alluded to, we associate this period with mcnamara, and with vietnam. but mcnamara's involvement in a whole series of other crises, both foreign and domestic, is simply remarkable. we've heard about the dominican republic, the nato crisis, the middle east war, czechoslovakian invasion, demonstrations in the streets of the united states. any one of these crises could have defined a presidency. for example, if we look at president jimmy carter's administration, it involved notable successes, but it's best remembered for the iranian hostage issue. when the iranians took over the american embassy in tehran, and then held hostage americans for more than a year. think about mcnamara. in january 1968, the n
that has helped expedite this thing with terrorism and their attacks on the united states? is it one person or many? who is responsible? >> i don't think there's a nickel's worth of difference between the two policies in terms of foreign policy. the first president bush, mr. clinton, the sec and mr. bush and mr. obama have made it their business to light to the american people, to insist we are being attacked because of what we think here in north america or how we lived rather than with united states government has done. the core of the problem is intervention in other people's business. part of that intervention is unfortunately necessary. we have to defend the saudis and operate because we depend on oil. our support of israel and our intervention in south sudan, the relentless intervention of the united states on issues that are not very important to it is because of what is going on and it is a bipartisan stimulus. it's not just one person. until we stop that war think about stopping at, there is no chance to stop this war and that is why so much about kite has spread so greatly since 2

of real significance to the united states. to do that, we will dedicate 80% of our effort to four major cases. right now they are syria, kenya, north/central america and burma. then we'll have another eight to ten places where we can test new approaches or make a welcome difference by just sending the the right person at the right time. so far i think we're gaining traction in each of our major priority engagements. many of you are working in these places, and we realize that we won't know it all or know best about them, so we hope for your support. in syria we are providing a nontraditional surge to empower and unite a fractured, nonviolent opposition. as the secretary announced, that includes providing nonlethal assistance. we are also working with partners to set up an outpost for the internal opposition to coordinate and communicate with the international community. in kenya we are helping to develop plans to insure peaceful and credible elections a year before the vote. incidentally, kenya is one place where we've seen a potential model for broad cooperation and innovation. in nort
. as the president said, preventing a nuclear iran is in the interest of the united states. we have issued reports, and the most recent one was issued on and.ary 1 and it includes a distinguished panel of four democratic members of congress, admirals' and generals and also experts to area our last report supported the view that the best approached to this challenge is a simultaneous pursuit of a triple track policy, which is of diplomacy, tough sanctions, and a credible and invisible military threat. we also issued a white paper on each of those tracks. i want to highlight one recommendation on each of those tracks, and then i will change it over to mort zuckerman. and the military threat we believe the united states should boost the credibility of its military to air around us nuclear facilities, and we have spelled out how to do so. one element has been selling bunker busters' to israel. we do not advocate an israeli strike, but this will send a strong signal to tehran to negotiate in good faith, encourage other states that the alternative to supporting u.s. sanctions could be military conflict
geopolitics -- host: oil and gas production in the western hemisphere is booming, with the united states emerging less dependent on supplies from an unstable middle east. vens, nigeria, and mexico. host: southeast michigan. what are gas prices like there, dave? caller: very good. someone saying on your show that prices were falling for the holidays. that's not true here in southeast michigan, which people here like to drive a lot up north. we have a wonderful, beautiful up north. but the prices here average in the low $3.90's. they were a week ago in the mid $3.60, around there. for my employees, it's all the same for them. we're traveling 60 mile an hour round trips and that really hits the pocketbook when you're having to travel every day for week. i'll companies are certainly quick to bring the price down. thanks and have a good holiday. host: it's not our oil that we're talking about, it belongs to oil companies. new hampshire, john on our democrats line joins us. hi. caller: just one note i've acknowledged over the last few weeks. we have a caller on your show, but he was discussing
the men and women who is died defending the united states in the first memorial day since the end the iraq war. the president laid a wreath at arlington national cemetery before saying all men and women who have fought and sacrificed their lives for the united states have the very same connection. listen. >> while their stories could be separated by hundreds of years and thousands of miles, they rest here. together. side-by-side. row by row. each of them loved this country. and everything it stands for. more than life itself. >>trace: the president vowed to take care of the troop whose make him heavy long after their service is over and moments ago the president held a ceremony at vietnam memorial as we showed you to mark the start of a 13 year project to honor the 50-year anniversary of the vietnam war. and now to ed live at the white house. ed the ceremony at wall was a long time coming for many vietnam veterans. >> it was. and that's because of the fact that when many of the vietnam veterans came home those fortunate enough to come home because over 58,000 who died during that conflict,
states. hispanic children are at the highest level of poverty in the history of the united states. i think the challenge is not how to bring them over to immigration reform or dialogue. just to make sure the latino community knows these facts and understands the failure of president obama. >> i agree with you there is a lot of ammunition. these comments about self deportation have indicated to some in the community he does not have respect for them. go to south texas and talk to latino ranch and farm owners and small businesses and members of the hispanic community. they are hard asses because they are the first to feel the adverse affect. cartels are shooting at them. are competing for jobs. there are a lot of reasons why they are hard asses but they do want to know the presidential candidate has respect for the community and in recognition this is not all a mexican problem. half the people here illegally came from hong kong the, nigeria on a visa and overstating it. the fact that all the people from central america are unworthy is a real problem. >> thank you. >> we will get behind

representative for the korean peninsula. the six-party talks will take place. >> both china and the united states really have the same fundamental interests when it comes to the peninsula and in north korea, which is peace, stability and the pursuit of denuclearization. >> davies will head to tokyo later in the day with talks with japanese officials. >>> a japanese research institute said satellite images show that north korea is building a new launchpad in the country's northeast. researchers at johns hopkins university announced the results of their analysis of the photos of the site taken on april 29th. the researchers say the work to upgrade the site began last summer. they say the images show the concrete foundations of a launchpad and buildings designed to enclose the fuel. they also say a large structure apparently intended for assembling rockets has been completed in a former residential area near the site. the institute said the upgrade is aimed at launching test launch also. it predicts the new facilities could be operational in four years. >>> south korean defense authorities want to b
, not only will the nation's security be stronger, the united states will secure the moral high ground needed to encourage it's allies and global fora like the global financial task force in paris, the g-8 and g-20 to consider ownership registries as a new international norm. primary point i want to make today is that the mechanisms in the global financial system, that permit the laundering of illegal ivory proceeds of the same mechanisms, used by victor boot, drug cartels and terrorist groups. shell companies, secret bank accounts and a host of other opaque entities create a structure that facilitates poach o'clock of all types. corporate registries should be a priority for congress. thank you again for the opportunity to address the committee. my written testimony has been provided for further details. and i look forward to your questions. >> well, thank you very much. your full testimony will be placed in the record in full. we appreciate it. secretary general? >> thank you very much, chairman kerry and thank you to yosef and to the committee members for your interest in this topic. it's a
to be back here. secretary of defense robert mcnamara came to personify the united states commitment in vietnam, and indeed, in many ways the ethos of the 1960s. he was the can-do man in the can-do society in the can-do era in david halverstam's phrase. in the early kennedy and johnson years, he managed the american commitment in vietnam almost as a desk officer, whether slogging through vietnam in army fatigues, spewing out statistics, or presiding at a press conference, and he came to embody what was known as secretary brown suggested as mcnamara's war. whatever the difficulties of the moment, he exuded a certainty that promised eventual success. in fact, we now know his public confidence far outlasted the emergence of profound private doubts about both the winnability of the war and indeed ultimately its purposes. and his departure from the pentagon in 1968, as much i think as lbj's march 31st speech of that year marked the glorious end of an era once bright with promise. as the war provoked increasingly nasty divisions in the united states, mcnamara became a target for critics fr
fortunate for the united states and the world that george bush had experienced world war i and was president at the end of the cold war. one must avoid psychological portraits, but the end of the cold war was as much the story of men at the top as of the masses. gorbachev experienced world war ii as a victim. kruschev did not wish to be the leader to lose it. in american terms it would be someone like lyndon johnson not wanting to lose vietnam. gorbachev, however, thought of world war ii in terms of the privation he experienced. he understood the terms of war more than the older of stalin's victims. he understood the toll of war but was also touched by what was later called the wise men. patrishian, careful and revolutionary isolationist. these men believe the 20th century did not just belong to united states, it was more importantly america's responsibility. george bush after all decided to enlist in world war ii after listening to henry stimson, perhaps the greatest representative of that strand of dna in american leadership. he was an inheriter of those values. yes, it took bush eight mon
believe the 20th century did not just belong to united states, it was more importantly america's responsibility. george bush after all decided to enlist in world war ii after listening to henry stimson, perhaps the greatest representative of that strand of dna in american leadership. he was an inheriter of those values. yes, it took bush eight months to grasp the gorby phenomenon. the reasons for that are complex. frankly, the oral histories give a series of not -- there isn't a consensus view among those who were interviewed. let me say for the sake of argument. let me propose what george bush's problem was in 199. -- 1989. he found himself struck by another great tradition in u.s. foreign policy and was not sure how to manage it. the nixon-kissinger approach of cold realism made a brief comeback in the twilight of the reagan years. iran contra, especially the president's romantic attachment to freeing the american hostages in beirut coupled with president reagan's romantic attachment to a nuclear free world, raised the hackles of many in the american establishment especially

boys quiet, i never imagined that i would be running for president of the united states. you just never know. [applause] but i also want to promise you, as you graduate from regent today and become an alumnus, he will never join a more defined are collect -- you will never join a more finer club. the dues were stiff, but the benefits are eternal, and will redound not only to you but the people you serve and minister to in the future but i want to congratulate you on one of the finest investment decisions you have ever made, and i don't just mean your new found her earning potential. your decision to come to regent was an act of sheer obedience. that's what it was for susan, and for me, too, the voice of almighty god could coming to reach into university was an excellent decision, it's like changing decision. my purpose today is to remind you that this day would not have occurred without the prayer and vision and work of countless generations who went before you. there would never have been a regent university, there never would have been this lovely, albeit hot ceremony today, without t
the effort? joining me now is james spidermarx. so, some u.s. lawmakers said the united states should take the lead and involve itself militarily. why is syria different than let's say libya. syria certainly had a greater population, a smaller piece of geography, therefore, it's a lot more urbanized and it becomes a very entangled and tough target to go against. unlike libya that had pocket of e resistance that were spread out and there seemed to be at some point, a unified opposition against gadhafi. so that answer to the question in terms of the difference between those two. in other words, it's a tougher nut to crack, a harder problem and would entangle us greatly. >> when you say something shouldn't be done, what is that something that should be done? >> well, clearly, what has to happen is the united, let's take it from the top and work our way down. united states is going to lose in this particular confrontation if russia brokers the deal to try to get assad to step aside. russia then is the peacemaker, russia owns the cards and have now caused this great con fill in syria to go away
the top counterterrorism threat to the nation. aqap has attempted several attacks on the united states in 2009 and 2010. we are currently exploiting an ied seized overseas which is similar to explosive devices used by aqap in the past. we also remain concerned about the threat from homegrown violent extremists. these individuals have no typical profile. their experience and motives are often distinct which make them difficult to find and difficult to stop. that may me turn next to counterintelligence. while we still confront additional s.b. notch, today's spies are students, researchers, business people or operators of front companies. they seek not only state secrets but also trade secrets, intellectual property and insider information from government, businesses and american universities. we are also seeing a growing insider threat. that is when employees use their legitimate access to steal secrets for the benefit of another company or another country. and of course the counterintelligence is now merging with the cyberthreat. so much sensitive data is stored on computer networks and
united states in. my third congressional district in colorado on the western slope better than 70% of the land is either federal, state or tribal lands. a lot of the forest, 100,000 trees per day that you mentioned are falling in our forest right now are creating an incredible challenge in terms of maintaining healthy forests. in terms of the fire threat. could you maybe speak to, we're talking mr. burke was noting about water quality issues. if these forces burn, what type of impact is that going to have on water quality? >> that's absolutely devastating, sir. if you look at what happened after some of the big fires in colorado to the denver watershed in particular the costs are astronomical. those are individuals paying a great deal more in the city of denver because they're relying on water from other parts of the state to be clean and healthy. the fact of the matter is when these trees burn and the soil is scorched it doesn't hold the water, it doesn't filter the water and we have tremendous impacts on our reservoirs because they fill up with sediment. >> would it be accurate
sales have failed. finally, the united states government should could use its considerable diplomatic influence to join with china in a leadership role to take immediate measures to end the illegal trade. china's recent actions are very welcomed, but need to be sustained over the long-term. idealy, the u.s. government could share some awareness over the situation and work for the joint leadership of china to solve the problem. if china would declare unilateral ten-year moritorium on ivory imports, it would be a better future in africa and thailand must enact serious reforms to control its ivory market. failing these needed actions, the u.s. government should ensure that those countries driving the demand are held to task at the upcoming society's conference of the parties in march 2013. maybe the u.s. should consider application of the amendment and sanctions process that law offers in cases where sight is being seriously undermined. i can think of no wildlife trade situation more serious than facing the african elephant. thank you for giving your precious time to listen to the plight

is that china is four times more people than the united states. that means four times more people to feed, to howls, to take care of. >> i think we have a graphic that shows that. there we are. >> income of per-capita -- income per capita is less than one-tenth of the united states and even by the year 2015 will not catch up anywhere near us. in a really severe totalitarian society like north korea, you could disregard people, star of them and put all of the resources into the military -- >> we have information on the screen derived from the world bank. but this is happening, though. you cannot buy a piece of clothing in the united states that was not made in china, practically. i am sure proud of his jacket, made in haiti. it's sort of looks as though they have taken us over, in a sense, and it creates anxiety and also the great sense that our jobs have gone to china. >> first of all, economists tell us this increase in trade benefits everybody. so, we are getting cheaper jackets than otherwise. but i actually agree that to the degree we are opening ourselves up to china, it must be much

rates. so, the economy is moving and the united states is benefiting from problems in europe and china because we are seeing some monies flow back in the united states. that is all good, too, and the united states could be the prettiest horse in the glue factory but it is still a very sluggish economy and moving at a below par rate. consumers are the key. 70's percent of our economy they are. and if we did not see more savings where they have room to spend or we do not see incomes improving, they are just going to be tapped out that is a real no one. >> what about a catalyst for a shot in the arm for the economy, everyone is talking about the fiscal cliff that the bush tax cuts have to be extended. if congress can pull this off, will that alone give us a psychological lift and we will feel more comfortable spending money, taking longer trips and driving further? what do you think of that idea? >>guest: well, i am glad you brought that up because the federal reserve talks about when they keep the interest rates low they are trying to create wealth effect to get the stock market up, and
